NWR: Halloween costumes

Soo...I know it's a month and a half off, but I always start thinking about costumes in late summer. :) I'm trying to think of something that I haven't done before that would be fun/cute with a twist of sexay and that I can pull together with maybe stuff from Value Village or whatever. I don't want to blow a lot on a crappy costume basically. In the past I've been: Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie Country bumpkin farmgirl Saloon girl Half devil/half angel 80's chick Evil fairy I need ideas!

    I'm no help. You could be a construction worker girl with cut off shorts and a hard hat and boots.. I was going to suggest a cop, nurse, or flight attendant but I think you'd have to buy something from Party City for that. Plus every one does that!

    I am always a fan of 80's! How about an 80's prom queen?

    I was Jem one year for Halloween. I found the perfect pink dress at the Red Light. I even found blue star earings. This year I am going to be a bumble bee :) ... I would just shop on broadway and you might find some inspiration. One of my friends was a purple people eater one year. She's also been a peacock. She always has some creative ideas. We always look to her to see what she is going to come up with.

    I could totally see you as Jem! :) I'm probably going to avoid being anything 80's this year, especially since I was an 80's chick last year.

    I think there is a picture of me on FB in my costume. I was also a dark angel one year. That was fun.

    I saw a beer costume that looked like so much fun! What about a pirate? May be a bit overdone but I always love pirates! I recommend the Red Light in Capitol Hill as well they have everything! I just bought a costume there on Sunday - I am going to be a sailor this year!

    I'll probably be a boring old lady who eats her own Halloween candy b/c no trick-or-treaters show up.  Again!  Unless my friends are doing something fantastic for Halloween, I tend to ignore it.  It's just not my fave holiday.  I'm more of a bday/Christmas girl (yay presents!)

    I'll be the grumpy gal sitting in the corner complaining because she knew there'd be no trick-or-treaters and so didn't even bother buying candy! Halloween is my top favorite holiday! However, I NEVER have any good parties to go to where people dress up or anything. :(

    Martha's got a really cute bumblebee hive hair-do in her current Halloween issue. There's a section for kid & parent costumes, although no reason you couldn't adapt that. The girl has a beehive with buzzing bees and then the other person is a bee-keeper. Likewise, there's a birdwatcher and a bird. You could be a sexy red robin or something and your FI with binoculars.

    I totally understand being grumpy b/c you don't get any trick-or-treaters.. I haven't had any for many years now. I love to decorate and everything yet never get anyone to enjoy it. I usually throw the parties but last year it didn't work out. I've been all sorts of things but not sure what I will be this year. I have tons of stuff that I have used in previous years.. maybe us *knotties* need to have a gtg and swap items or just have a lil party! ;-p hehe who knows, maybe I will just throw a party this year and invite all my fellow knotties and see who comes. LOL  :D

    Lol, KS, when I read the "Sexy Red Robin" what first came to mind was the Red Robin from the Red Robin restaurants and I was like "How is that sexy!??" :D

    I have been a Hooters girl in the past. You can just buy a shirt alter it a little, orange shorts, nylons, white shoes, and rediciously long white sock bunched up! :)
  • edited December 2011
    Trisha - that's actually really good! At first I was like "ridiculously long white sock bunched up?? Why on earth would you wear a long white sock bunched up??" and then I got it. :P Don't know if I'm in shape enough to pull it off quite yet, but there's always next year!
